SU Remarkable You

July 30, 2015

I am a CAS gal- well, when it comes to stamping, I am pretty much CAS. So, I am smitten with the new SU Remarkable You Calla Lily and Water Lily images. I did research on Calla Lillies to see the colors and was surprised to see a variety of hues. From this quick research, I did notice that the spadix of the Calla Lily in all of the different colors is yellow. I can remember making my homeschooled kids memorize all the parts of flowers for science class- happy memories:)

However, I love how all colors can be used in the magical world of stamping- purple elephants, green giraffes, and even a pumpkin pie spadix in one of my cally lilies:)

As always, whatever I am working with ultimately is my favorite stamp-du-jour! Here is my card using the SU Remarkable You stamp set with a Pear Pizzazz card base and ink and accents of Daffodil Delight. With a bold image like this, it is was hard to embellish my card but I think the simple black and white baker’s twine worked well with the retired Daffodil Delight button.

I also used my NEW Archival Basic Black felt ink pad that SU blessed me with at Convention last week- oh my my- it is wonderful- crisp, clean, and REALLY BLACK!! It will be in the new Holiday catalog coming out Sept. 1. Yipee!

A little something on the inside, too…

Both of these cards are designed in the portrait position using two more sentiments from the SU Tin of Cards and flowers/leaves from the SU Bountiful Borders stamp sets. Both cards showcase Crushed Curry and Cucumber Crush inks and paper.

SU Bountiful Border/Tin of Cards Notecard File Box #2

July 25, 2016

I hope you saw my  Notecard File Box in my last post…

For our Product Class last week, the girls took home either the SU Tin of Cards or the SU Bountiful Border stamp set after making the file box and eight mailable notecards with envelopes- two each of four designs. All four cards have the stripe patterned DSP from the new SU Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack and three scattered White Perfect Accents– super cute embellishments .

Both of these cards are in the landscape position. The first one uses a sentiment from the SU Tin of Cards and a flower/leaves from the Bountiful Border with a Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush palette.

This next  card uses the star and another sentiment from the SU Tin of Cards. The green dots come from the SU Bountiful Border stamp set. The color palette is Pacific Point, Crushed Curry, Watermelon Wonder, and Cucumber Crush.

SU Bountiful Border Tin of Cards Congrats Notecard

To Make these Notecards:

Cut card bases 6 ¾” x 4 7/8   and score at 3 3/8”

Front White panels are 3 1/8” x 4 5/8”

and trim to fit on the Congrats card.

SU Tin of Cards/Bountiful Border NoteCard File Box #1

July 23, 2015

Hello friends!

As you are reading this…I am at my first day of  the SU Convention!! And, Can You Case It # 79 understands how busy this week is…and I knew it would be so I saved this to show to you this week!

CYCI79-300x253

I  recently had the awesome opportunity to demonstrate a project at our last Demonstrator Meeting up on the big screen- nervous but shows I may in the future get around to doing a video for you all! Thankfully, the crowd was so encouraging and Linda and Matt Heller did all the videography!

I made a Notecard File Box using the SU Tin of Cards and the SU Bountiful Border stamp sets. I did two different versions. The first one uses the File Tab Edgelits to make the dividers and the SU You’re So Sweet stamp set to adorn the front. The second one uses a floral punch, and DSP so it is a Tic-Tac-Toe at the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #6.

SU Tin of Cards, You're So Sweet BOX

This one uses the Oval Punch and Scallop Oval Punch to make the divider labels.

SU Tin of Cards Pansy BOX

SU Pansy Flower on File Box

As you can see, I chose a fresh, bright color palette of SU Pacific Point, Crushed Curry, Watermelon Wonder, and Cucumber Crush.

To make this simple little file box, follow these instructions:

Start with a 9 ½” x 9 ¾” piece of cardstock

On the 9 ¾” side, score at 4 ½” and 6 ½”

On the 9 ½” side, score at 2 in and 7 ½”

Cut in on 4 ½” and 6 ½” score lines up to the 2” score line on both sides. Trim off a little sliver piece from both sides of each flap to facilitate tight corners that fold in easily. Keep the box flush with a hard surface as you put it together.  I used Snail Adhesive to put the box together since it is not holding really heavy stuff. But, you can use tear and tape or FUSE adhesive to put the box together for extra hold.

I prefer the look of finished front corners so I wrapped the shorter front flaps over the taller back flaps. This also helps you see a line when you can cut the angles on the sides with your scissors from the front to the back. But if you do it with the taller flaps coming to the front, you will still be okay:) I talk from experience!

SU File Box side view

Decorate the front with DSP cut to 5 ¼” x 3”

Make a flower using the Pansy Punch and leaves using the Fun Flower Punch or
Use You’re So Sweet “Just For You” image.

The dividers in the upper photo are die cut with the File Tab Edgelits with the same width of 5 3/8″ but with staggering heights of 4″, 4 1/8″, 4 1/4″, and 4 3/8″. Alternate each divider from front to back with the two different file tab edglits.

The dividers in the the second box with the Pansy Flower are all cut to 4″ x 5 3/8″ and corner rounded on each side.

Wouldn’t you like to see the cards inside?

Well, buzz by the next few days to see them…cindy-bee-only.jpg
